    Ep 75 - Salou Abú

    It’s finally happened. After talking about it in nearly every episode since the podcasts inception, Kevin and PJ have grabbed their sunnies and speedos and have made their way to stunning Salou. An entire episode dedicated to the iconic Spanish location. They discuss the chaos at the airport with all the feral kids on their flight, being the biggest gays Salou ever did see and Kevin gives his top Spanish phrases you need to know if you’re queer and heading away on a holiday.

    Ep 74 - Check Your Tits Babe

    Ep 74 - Check Your Tits Babe

    This weeks episode very nearly didn’t happen as Kevin’s voice is virtually non-existent having attended a Britney-themed night out at the weekend and then having taught two spin classes back to back the next morning but being the professional he is, he soldiers on. They talk about the latest addition to PJ’s tattoo collection and wish a happy birthday to a special man in their lives.
    They then speak to their friend Lauren Mahon (IG: @Iamlaurenmahon) otherwise known as GirlVsCancer and talk about her inspiring story of building a community of support and raising thousands of pounds for charity following her breast cancer diagnosis in 2016. They talk about her work on the BBC podcast You, Me and The Big C, discuss what exactly it means to be a boss babe, PJ’s addiction to trying to normalise everything and the weird half-voice Irish mams do when they don’t want everyone to hear them.

    Ep 73 - Cruising For A Bruising

    Ep 73 - Cruising For A Bruising

    The boys are feeling rested and refreshed as PJ spent the week with the boyf in Dublin and Kevin had the gaff to himself so he was in his element. They talk about the fact that Rihanna has become a billionaire which means that if we’re to eat the rich then we’re going to have to hide her down in West Cork somewhere as she’s one of the good ones.
    The theme for this week is fights and feuds even though Kevin couldn’t punch his way out of a paper bag. They recall physical altercations they’ve had in the past, discuss iconic celebrity fall-outs and name people they reckon they could take in a fight (so Niall Horan watch out babe).

    Episode 72 - No Place Like Homo

    Episode 72 - No Place Like Homo

    The lads are still recovering from their first night out on the tiles and are only itching to tell you all about it. They talk about all the rides in the Olympics and Joe Wicks being the ultimate himbo. 
    They then chat to the living legend and Gaff Goddess herself, Laura de Barra.
    From her helpful home hack videos to the success of her best-selling book, Laura details how she became the queen of She-IY™. She also tells us to detract attention from walls that are pure purple and manky when you’re renting.

    Ep 71 - Ten A's Twomey

    Ep 71 - Ten A's Twomey

    The episode starts off with Kevin taking the piss out of PJ for purchasing a rose gold fan because PJ has always been so vocal about the fact that he despises anything in that colour. And because Kevin’s hairdryer blew up just before the record they put out an appeal to Dyson to send them a fan and new hairdryer. Pretty please?
    Confessions are back due to popular demand and of course they’re as chaotic as ever. From faking Leaving Cert results to a stunning life hack on how to quickly get rid of a tricky number two, the girlies do not disappoint with their disclosures. Also find out Kevin’s nickname that he swears he didn’t come up with himself in school.

    Ep 70 - Baby On Board

    Ep 70 - Baby On Board

    The lease on the lads’ gaff is nearly up and they’re contemplating moving elsewhere but Kevin has grown too attached to having a bedroom on the ground floor and reckons he would fare well in a bungalow. They also discuss a wedding they’re both due to attend and because Kevin won't know anyone there he's planning to adopt a different persona for the duration of the event.
    They then have a chat about starting a family as a queer person and speak with Ranae von Meding (IG: @ranaevonmeding), the CEO and co-founder of Equality For Children, an organisation who are doing stunning work fighting for the rights of children of LGBTQ+ families.
